...the stockings were hung...

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
I decided I wanted to make new stockings for our family this year. I'd been thinking about it for a while, then one early morning while grocery shopping at Wal-mart I slipped into the fabric department, and decided for sure...yep new stockings it is. Our old ones were pretty cute, Hunter Dan especially loved them because they were pink camo for the girls and green for the boys.(in fact he says Santa likes the old ones better, and will probably switch them out when he fills them.) I wanted a more Mrs. Santa Claus look...traditional red and green. I got all the fabric I needed for about 9 dollars. Making seven stockings took a while, but it was fun and I love how they turned out.
I wanted these ones a bit smaller than my old ones, but they still ended up being about 20 inches. Then there is this one on the end...no name yet for the baby, so for now just blank.
***************
We got a bit of a storm yesterday!!!!
This picture doesn't really do it justice. We got a lot of snow!!!!It is gorgeous outside, the roads were hairy on the way to my Doctors appointment, but it is beautiful. The kids want to play in it sooo bad, but it is COLD out there....in fact right now it is.....
Holy smokes did ya see that? 7.6!!! BRRRRR...cold in my house too, gotta turn the heat up.
****************

WHY????? In the world am I up at 4:14 a.m.???....and taking pictures? My back is a little achy, my mind is racing a little, I have really weird dreams, do ya think I am a bit anxious for baby to get here? I went in for my last appointment yesterday before induction on the 18th. Dilated to a 2. Doctor says maybe I'll go on my own, never have yet, but that would be ok with me. I have a few more presents to wrap, but other than that...I AM READY!!! Have I mentioned Jibbity's birthday is on the 23rd? Her presents are wrapped and ready, goodie bags are ready to be taken to school, and the "happy birthday" letters are cut out and ready to be hung up. AHHHH!
I think I will try to go back to sleep before the mad morning school rush starts in a couple of hours. Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!! STAY WARM!:-)

Nice stalkings! You did an amazing job. Wow I thought I was cold, you are really really cold. It got down to 20 last night, but we are in Northern CA. Praying for you to have a safe delivery!

Great job on the stockings! I can't sew to save my life!

We got snow here, last night, and it's about 15 degrees today! Brr..I'm staying home!

Myya said...

LOVE the new stockings! I need to get news ones too... Now that we added our 3rd little girl we don't match & it so bugs me! How exciting your new one will be here soon. I've got one 2 1/2 wks before Christmas & one 2 1/2 weeks after... that is too close I can't imagine one on the 18th & the 23rd yikes!!! God Bless you, you are one busy mama!!! : )

The cold has arrived at our house too... it was 9 degrees yesterday morning... sooooo cold for my area of Oregon. Not sure how much I am liking this! LOL.
